Man Steals Painkillers--Turns Out They Were Laxatives

Have you ever had a moment when you realized you made a really big mistake? Well, one Florida thief learned the hard way about messing up medications.

Say hello to Peter Hans of Pinellas Park, Florida who last Thursday morning stole some pills out of his roommate's lock box. Peter was convinced that they were painkillers, since they were in a prescription bottle with a label that said "Hydrocodone-Acetaminophen."

Turns out they weren't opioids but rather laxatives. Peter admitted to the cops he took the pills and he says he threw the rest away when he realized they were something else. Can only imagine what that moment was like.
